 Notes
Review: The first issue of this ongoing weekly was issued July 26, 1879 under the title Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047402, published by William Wyatt Moore, a native Floridian, a staunch Democrat and an experienced newspaperman. He had previously worked for a newspaper in Tallahassee (FL) and had published newspapers in the Florida cities of Jacksonville, Lake City, Cedar Key and Pensacola. After publishing for a short time as the Weekly Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047403 and reversion back to the Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047404, the name was changed to the Starke (FL) Telegraph LCCN: sn95047405. In 1887, Sterling Moore sold a half-interest in the newspaper to I.C. Webb, who became sole owner within a few months and changed the name to the Bradford County (FL) Telegraph LCCN: sn95047406 in 1888. In 1893, Eugene S. Matthews, who had previously worked for newspapers in the Florida cities of Gainesville and Ocala, purchased the Bradford County Telegraph with Ben J. Farmer, who then sold his interest to Matthews in 1898. Eugene S. Matthews published the Bradford County Telegraph for forty years. During this time, he was also elected to the state legislature in 1904, 1907, 1911 and 1923. His son, Eugene L. Matthews, a graduate of Columbia University's School of Journalism, took over the publication in 1933, matching his father's record of forty years as publisher. On his retirement in 1973, he sold the paper to his sons-in-law, Bobby Ferguson and John Miller. The Bradford County Telegraph continues to be published ca. 2007 by John Miller, who also publishes the Lake Region Monitor LCCN: not known to exist and the Union County (FL) Times LCCN: sn95047168. Mark Crawford is the editor. Source: Bradford County Telegraph, July 26, 1979, centennial issue. The Lake Region Monitor is not known to exist and has not been described by any other source.--E.

New traffic signal going

up on U.S. 301 at 227

Speed limit reduction being posted as well


Improvements to make a U.S. 301
intersection safer began Monday with
a Florida Department of Transportation
project to install a traffic signal just
south of Starke.
The U.S. 301 intersection with C.R.
227 (on the west) and Southeast 125"'
Street (on the east) was experiencing a
high number of crashes and increasing
side street traffic. A study of the
intersection revealed that 13 crashes
occurred between January 2006 and
April 2007.
The FDOT contracted with Traffic
Control Devices, an Altamonte Springs
company, to install the traffic signal at
a cost of about $95,000. Traffic impacts
should be minimal during the next
several weeks but daytime lane closures
will eventually be required during the
installation of sensors in the pavement
and the actual installation of the traffic
signals over the travel lanes.
Installation of the control box and
foundation poles will be off the roadway
with little impact to traffic. All work
should be completed within 45 days,


depending on weather.
The speed limit at the intersection
is also being reduced from 65 mph to
55 mph with the installation of signs
expected to occur this week. The 55
mph speed limit will extend north to
the next signalized intersection at the
Wal-Mart Supercenter entrance where
it drops to 45 mph.
The next traffic signal to the south
of the newest one being installed is
2.7 miles away at C.R. 18 just west of
Hampton.
Motorists on C.R. 18 also use C.R.
227 as a cut through road to get to U.S.
301, which caused the traffic volumes
to increase to the numbers needed to
warrant the new traffic signal.
During construction, motorists
are reminded that speeding fines are
doubled when construction workers are
present.
For more information on this project,

Office at 800-749-2967 (ext. 3714) or

Developments popping up in Lawtey despite economy


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

More and more, it won't be flashing
blue lights that causing people to stop in
Lawtey. A new Subway restaurant and
two new retail stores in the works-
Dollar General and Ace Hardware-are
proving the small city's potential for
commercial development.
Like Starke, Lawtey shares the
potential to benefit commercially from
U.S. 301 and the thousands people it
funnels through the city limits every
day.
Waldo to the south of Bradford
County has been experiencing growth,
with new fast food stops, service
stations and a new hotel (not to mention
the "cafe' that most people would rather
not mention.)
Lawtey is poised to reap the same
benefits, and even have first claim on
southbound travelers.
In addition to encourage travelers to
spend money in Lawtey, city residents
will be able. tp keep more of their
business local as well. People will
be able to shop for items they might
otherwise had to travel to- Starke or
elsewhere for, saving travel time and
money.
Ray Shuford opened Subway in
March on 301 frontage his family has
owned for years, not too far from the
city's only other sit down restaurant, the
Pii Stop Cafe.
Dollar General purchased the former
Greg Griffis property next to the Lawtey
post office and the building going up
quickly. City Clerk Lisa Harley said
an October opening is planned for the
discount retailer.


A new Dollar General store is quickly coming out of the ground in Lawtey, one of a handful of new or
proposed developments in the small city.


Development of the Ace Hardware
store behind the Dollar General has not
been finalized, but city officials have
seen plans and say it's probable. Harley
said an April opening would be just in
time for planting season.
Growth does come with growing
pains. Councilman Carlton Jones openly
worried what the addition of a Dollar
General Store would mean for the long-


established Lawtey Supermarket. Mayor
Jimmie Scott disagreed, and said the
store would bring more business and
revenue to the city.
The dollar store., hardware store
and sandwich shop will add sales tax
revenue this year and property tax
revenue in years to come, and could be
the first of even more new businesses.
The city could use the dollars those


businesses would bring. It's a fact that
the city's major revenue source is traffic
fines, but even those are down. The
clerk and council are working on next
year's budget, but as of last week there
were deficits in. both the general and
utility funds. The general fund is off
nearly $80,000, quite a bit considering

Future of T.H.E. Apartments not entirely clear


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor


Things are happening at T.H.E.
Apartments in Starke, but it's not
entirely clear what.
A managerat the low-income housing
complex said she had been told by a
HUD representative not to talk to the
press. Three tenants also said they had
been told by HUD subcontractor, David
Madden of Lord and Dominion, not to
talk to reporters.
Nevertheless-we know the
following.
On March 16 of this year, the
Department of Housing and Urban
Development's field office in
Jacksonville-notified Harris Millman
of Haven Starke, LLC, that HUD would
no longer make housing assistance
payments, or HAP, for T.H.E.


Apartments in Starke, effective Aug. 1.
"...this office notified you of its intent
to abate and then terminate the Section
8 Housing Assistant Payments contract
as a result of your failure to maintain the
property pursuant to HUD's physical
condition standards," the HUD letter
stated.
On July 21, the HUD office requested
that the city of Starke assist them in
finding a suitable space in which to
meet with the tenants.
On Aug. 5, that meeting was held at
the Bradford County Public Library to
notify tenants that they would have to
move.
Last week, some tenants-but not
all-at the housing development had
written materials from the meeting,
with fairly clear information about what
was about to happen to them.
Some-but not all-of the tenants


know where they will be living next. If
the tenants are correct, about 35 to 40
families have no idea where they will
be living by Oct. 5.
T.H.E.Apartments on Brownlee Road.
in Starke hhs been a HUD-certified
multi-family facility since the late 60s
and early 70s. Around Oct. 5, all the
approved HAP tenants are supposed
to have been moved to a new location.
The tenants say 17 families will move
to Whispering Oaks Apartments.
T.H.E. rents will then revert to market
rates, and the remaining tenants must
find and pay for their own housing,
either at T.H.E. or elsewhere.
Tenants and T.H.E. watchers alike
believe eviction notices will go out in
September or October. But then again,
maybe not.
According to a recent report in the
Bradford County Telegraph, HUD had


supposedly given the current owner or
owners a reprieve after some upgrades
and repairs were made.
It's not clear whether HUD might
reconsider housing subsidies for T.H.E.
after upgrades are made, or whether the
agreement will come to an end in the
next few months no matter what.
On the Bradford County property
appraiser's Web site,T.r.E. Apartments
is listed as being owned by Haven
Starke LLC. As of this week it was still
listed as being managed by Barfield Bay
Management with a mailing address in
Naples, Fl.
Neither Barfield Bay's Web site nor
AT&T has a telephone number listed
for the company, although afax number,
mail and e-mail addresses are shown.

Sheriff's history makes for laughs at roast


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Part roast, part toast, Bradford
County Sheriff Gordon Smith
was the man of the hour at a
fundraiser for the Bradford
County Historical Preservation
Society last Saturday.
Smith said he grew up red-
headed and freckled, so he's
able to take a joke. That's good,
because fryers including his good
pal and former employee Barry
Warren spent an hour taking
shots at him. Warren started
ouit by saying there actually
wasn't much to say about the
sheriff at all. Still, he and the
others managed to share a few
memories.
For example, Warren
remembered what a skinny guy
Smith was when the two played
football together in high school.
Smith was weak-side end. The
"weak" description in this case
was apparently literal. Warren,
of course, was strong-side end.
Fast forward to years later
when Smith joined the police.
department where Warren was an
investigator and eventually found
himself working for Smith.
The difference between
younger and older Smith was
this new Smith wanted people
to believe he was a stand up guy,
Warren said.
Being Smith's subordinate
had such advantages as being
repeatedly volunteered to
participate in the Kiwanis Club's
Mz. Ugly contests. After all,
Smith said it was part of Warren's
job being in charge community
relations. Eventually, Warren
gave in.
"So I went and borrowed his
dcess," Warren said, and when
it was all over, he asked Smith
why he had been putthrough the
ordeal.
"He said, 'Barry, we've been
together so long, I just had to see
what you looked like in a dress!'"
Apparently, he didn't look good
enough, because Wairen said
that's why he was left behind
at the police department when
Smith became sheriff.
Dan Sikes said most people
doi'triealize Smith met his'w,
Stefanie, in high school.
"Of course, she was a student
and he was a school resource
officer!" Sikes said. "I'm not
going to say Gordon was robbing
the cradle, but she had her
bachelorette party at Chucky
Cheese!"
Sikes said his grandfather
always told him that county
politics was like a cesspool-the
biggest chunks always float to
the top. Sure enough, Smith told
Sikes years ago he was going to
be county sheriff. " ."'
"Of course, that was just after
they had burned a marijuana
field!" Sikes said. There's still
stories told about that day, he
added.
"As the wind blew and the
fire and smoke shifted, Gordon
, bravely placed himself between
the smoke and the rest of the
officers!"
Sikes said the first thing he
thought when Smith was elected
sheriff came from political
strategist James Carville-there's
no telling what will happen when
you drag $100 bill through a
trailer park. But there may have
been more behind the landslide
win.

Clay County Sheriff Rick Besler joined Gordon and Stefanie Smith for dinner at the roast.


"It's not like Gordon went
out and got a fistful of absentee
votes from the nursing homes,
but when I found out that Archie
Tanner and Steve Futch were the
chairmen of his voter registration
drive ..." he trailed off.
Sikes also called into question
Smith's judgment, .such as
supporting the appointment of
Jeff Johnson as head of the police
department.
"Pumpkin! There's a
(nickname) that will strike fear
in a criminal!"
But perhaps worst of all was
a tradition Smith started when
attorney Sikes was questioning
him one day in court, and Smith
had to consult his notes for an
answer. Smith looked down and
proceeded to scratch his nose-
with his middle finger.
"He has shot me the bird in
front of judges and juries ever
since, and he's started other law
enforcement officers doing the

Sikes took k;.ife',potsts>dl
his fellow fryers, too. He said
when it was reported Warren
had told a resident concerned
about a possible death in the
neighborhood to call him. back
when she smelled something, he
had given new meaning to the
term "nosey neighbor." Sikes also
said Judge George Pierce was
one of the most liberal judges on
the bench-at least when it came
to interpreting the rules of golf.
Pierce said he was actually
much tougher on a teenaged
Gordon Smith when the boy
showed up in his courtroom
for, of all things, climbing and
painting the Starke water tower.
Thai revelation deliglited the
crowd."
"You're embarrassing the
tar out of your mother'," Pierce
told him that day in court
before demanding that Smith
apologize to her on the spot. In
spite of 40 hours of community
service washing fire trucks and
a warning that he had better not
return to court, Pierce said it
wasn't that long before he was in
trouble again.
. This time it was improper
disposal-improper disposal of


hog innards in the police dispatch
station!
"Couldn't you find any other
place to bury this stuff?" the
I judge ased - Wef, ,UMf vffi
Sclsest place," thaetoung Smith
replied.
Smith's mom,Sue Willingham,
continued the tales of his unruly
youth.
"His favorite saying growing
up was 'Don't tell mom,'" she
said when she took the podium.
Actually, he wasn't all that bad.
The roots of his career in law
enforcement probably came from
a childhood of protecting other
kids from bullies.
Sure, Smith needed some
discipline himself, but his mom
said when he turned 14 he decided
he was too old to get spankings.
He went to her and told her as
much, requesting that she treat
him like a man from that point
forward. He was; after all, like a
father to the younger kids.
Mom, agreed she'd treat him
like a man, but with a warning
to remember what he had asked
for. Sure enough, it wasn't long
until the two got into it about
the whereabouts of a beloved
hat. Smith accused his mom of
throwing it out, but true to her


Jimmy Smith,
the sheriff's
brother,
shows that
most of his
comments
had to be
censored.


ON


Nope. She hit
him "good and
hard "
"I never had
to spank him
anymore. He
S was real good
after that" said
Willingham,
who raised
Smith and his
brothers largely
on her own.
Smith's
younger brother Jimmy was
the final fryer for the evening.
Unfortunately, the list of things
fie could'talk aboul was m'os'it"
cro- scJ oit. , .., .
"This is what I wound up
with. Pretty much I didn't have
anything except for an 'a,' an
'and,' and 'you should have
seen the look on her face when
I walked through the bedroom
door!'" he said.
. That was the extent of the bad
things he could' say publicly,
so he went on to say how his
older brother had been a father
figure for him and his brothers.
Jimmy used to be able to brag
that he became a police sergeant
before his older brother-until
Smith took it two steps further,
becoming first a police chief and
then sheriff.
And the county couldn't have
chosen a better man for the job,
he said.
There were other kind words
spoken for Smith as well.
Contrary to his stories, Warren
said he really enjoyed working for
Smith at the police department,
an agency he changed for the
better.
"I'm proud to call him my


word, she didn't spank him like'a ..sheriff, and I hope you all are,
child at this show of disrespect. too," Warren said.

Sikes said it has been a pleasure
watching Smith progress over the
years, and he wished him many
more years of success.
Willingham said it's wonderful
seeing one's children grow up
and 'live their dreams the way
hers have. Smith's dream was
to be sheriff. Not just sheriff of
anywhere, she said--sheriff of
Bradford County.
Smith's mom said he might
not have been born here, as some
have pointed out, but he was made
here-another revelation that
delighted the crowd. Apparently
i'e house' is still standing on

Yes, Willingham was seven
months pregnant when they
moved to Ohio, but she said she
brought him back home.
"This has always been our
home," she said.
Some of the audience members-
took speaking about Smith,
commenting on his ability to
charm the opposite sex or what
a proud father he is. The most
poignant, however, was his wife,
who tearfully said how proud she
was of her husband. The position
of sheriff has been hlis dream;-.,


and if anyone deserves it, he"
does, she said.

Motion to sell assets fails at heated FMPA board meeting


Dozens protest high
electricity prices

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Cities interested in exiting the
Florida Municipal Power Agency
may not have gotten anywhere at
last week's agency board meeting
in'Orlando, but irate customers
definitely made themselves heard
during a three-hour session that
morning, according to Starke
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson.
Green Cove Springs, locked
into the same long-term all-
requirements power contract the
city of Starke is, made a stand
at the meeting, requesting that
the board issue a request for
proposals for the purchase of
agency assets or alternatively
conduct a feasibility study on the
dissolution of the ARP project
and distribution of those assets
among the members. �


Translation: Green Cove wants
out, just like the city of Starke
and some other all-requirements
members.
Thompson, who.. represents
Starke on the FMPA board,
supported the motion, but it
ultimately failed miserably with
a 2-13 vote.
As a way of potentially
reducing customer costs, Green
Cove Springs also asked that the
natural gas hedging policy be put
on the agenda. Futures contracts
entered into by the agency have
caused customers to pay above-
market-value prices for the fuel
being used to generate electricity
because fuel prices dipped quite
a bit. That increased customers'
fuel adjustment rates and drove
their utility bills up as the agency
lost many millions of dollars
paying more than necessary for
natural gas.
Green Cove moved that the
member cities direct FMPA staff
to limit hedging contracts to
no more than 30 percent of the
agency's estimated fuel needs


in any three-month period. The
motion, supported by the city
of Starke, failed, according to
Thompson, as did a subsequent
motion to table the issue.
Thompson said the city
of Kissimmee then moved
to suspend hedging until the
business model working group,
which Thompson also sits on,
makes a policy recommendation
to the executive committee on its
gas hedging program.
So, for the time being at least,
the agency won't be able to lock
in any prices on natural gas
purchases beyond what is already
hedged. In addition, a portion of
the current contract is expiring
later this year, which should
cause bills to drop.
Starke and Green Cove Springs
are not the only cities unhappy
with the management of FMPA,
Thompson said. Others include
Lake Worth and Fort Meade,
which had dozens of protesters
with signs present at the meeting.
Several spoke during the' public
comments portion of the meeting,


telling stories that many locally
can identify with. Power bills
that exceed mortgage payments.
People on fixed incomes who
cannot pay for both electricity
and medicine. A grocery store in
danger of closing.
Familiar stories, indeed.
According to The Ledger,
Fort Meade signed the all-
requirements contract in 2000,
but it did not begin receiving
power from FMPA until this year
because of a preexisting contract
with Tampa Electric. Before
Fort Meade was paying around
$80 per 1,000 kilowatt-hours for
wholesale power. That jumped
to $130 under FMPA, which dug
deeply into the utility profits the
city uses to help pay for services.
As a result the city had to raise
rates on customers. At more than
$172 per 1,000 kWh in July, Fort
Meade was the most expensive
municipal electric utility in the
state, according to a survey from
the Florida Municipal Electric
Association.

Grants could renovate Lawtey parks, build more sewer


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD

The Lawtey City Council is
hoping grants can make park
improvements and extend the
ongoing sewer project citywide.
The grant hearings held
last week were conducted by
Susan Armstrong of Jordan and

the city to seek out funding for
these projects.
The first grant application is
for Tatum Brothers Park, which
is on Park Street across from city

workshops were brainstorming
sessions and plans have not been
finalized, but ideas include the
conversion of the tennis courts to
a basketball court that would be
used more frequently.
On the other hand, the
recreation board continued work
on renovating the rec building,
even after grant funding was
denied last year, according to
Councilman Carlton Jones. The
result is that little remains to be
completed in the building, but
there was talk of expanding the
covered pavilion toward the rec
building to keep park users dry
when walking between the two
structures in'wet weather.
The real obstacle to using the
building and renting it out to the


public again is the lack of sewer
service, which is something that
cannot ,be addressed until the
second phase of the city's sewer
project is under way-and that
depends on funding for a separate
grant. Water fountains could be
added under the FRDAP grant
without issue.
A walking or biking path at
this site wouldn't be feasible-
because of the lack of land,
however. Because the grant is
site specific, it cannot be used to
tie together the other areas where
residents are walking.
Another possibility
is landscaping and park
beautification, so long as any
additional care would not pose a
burden on the city.
The second FRDAP grant
would fund improvements at


what is called Community Park;
around eight acres of land on
Middleburg Road. Existing
facilities include a bill field and
rec building..It has been leased to
a community group, but fell into
disuse after it was used a staging
and materials storage site for the
sewer project.
Despite its current appearance,
the park has potential, and the
hope is to refurbish the facilities
and add a second ball field

Water management updates, future plans aimed at protecting resources


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Suwannee River Water
Management District has
updated the Bradford County
Commission on recent changes
and coming plans aimed at
protected a resource that is more
limited than we thought.
"We don't have everything
we thought we had at one
point," said Steve Minnis, the
water management district's
government affairs director.
Minnis said the district
has had the same water use
permitting regulations since at
least the early 1980s. In order
to protect existing legal users,
ensure the resource is being used
in a reasonable and beneficial
manner, and to protect the public
interest, he said the district
recently published updates to its
water use permitting rules..
"We're getting into the 21-1
century. Conservation, now, is
going to be required," Minnis
said. "It should be just an ethic
that everyone has. We all need to
be good stewards and to ensure
that the resource is used widely."
When asked, he was quick to
point out, however, that domestic
wells are exempt from water use
permits but not well construction
permits.
Updates ensure more than
water preservation, he said.
For example, they also protect
landowners by requiring that


the owners themselves apply for
permits. Before, a tenant could
get a permit for water use or
well construction on someone's
property without his or her
knowledge. Prohibiting that is
only fair, Minnis said, because if
there is an issue with compliance,
the district must go after the
landowner.
Minnis also briefly discussed
Senate Bill 2080, which was
amended to give the director's
of the state's five water
management districts the
ability : to approve water use
permits for developments. This
became a concern for some
since those applications would
no longer be going before the
district governing boards, which
conducted public hearings on the
permit requests.
In the case of the Suwannee
River Water Management
District, Minnis said 90
percent or more of the district's
permitting authority had already
been delegated to the executive
director. Three or fewer permits,
per year might have gone to the
board, he said.
One of the other things that
became attached to the bill
was the requirement that water
management districts continue
payments in lieu of taxes on
property they acquire and
take of the tax rolls in fiscally
constrained counties with fewer
than 150,000 people beyond the
prior 10-year requirement.
The law was originally


changed for state agencies in
2008, but water management
districts were exempt until after
this year's legislative session. As
a result, Minnis gave the county
commission a check worth more
than $6,000.
Every five years, Minnis said
water management districts
are required to perform water
supply assessments to determine
if the enough water is available
to meet all demands, including
residential, agricultural and
industrial use. When a strain
on the resource is detected, the
district must enter a water supply
planning process.
The water system must be
protected from "significant
harm" so an adequate water
supply can be guaranteed for all
users, Minnis said.
The district has the highest
concentration of natural springs
anywhere in the world. More than
250 have been identified, and
more than 170 feed the Suwannee
River. They are particularly
important during low' flow
periods because they account for
72 percent of the river's flow, so
it's vital to the economy that the
springs and the aquifer that feeds
them be protected, Minnis said.
If water levels drop too low, then
those springs will dry up.
At the same time, a great deal
of the surface watersheds are
outside the water management
district's jurisdiction and even
out of the state and the Florida
Aquifer is an important source


of water for this state as well
as southern parts of Georgia,
Alabama and South Carolina.
That offers a complex challenge
to coordinate with other states
on water issues, Munnis said. If
Florida enacts regulations that
developers can escape by cross ng
the state line, the state economy
could be impacted at the same
time those developments are still
impacting water supply here.
The district's current water
supply assessment should be
done by December 2010, but the
Suwannee River and St. Johns
River water management districts
have already begun to work
jointly on a plan to respond to a
strain detected on groundwater
resources in the region.
A Unites States Geological
Survey has measured a significant
drawdown of the Floridan Aquifer
in a wide area that includes
southeast Georgia and the
Jacksonville metropolitan area,
according to Minnis. The water-
level decline is widening toward
the Upper Santa Fe River Basin,
which includes portions of Baker,
Columbia, Bradford, Union and
Alachua counties. Aquifer water
levels have dropped 30-40 feet
around Jacksonville and more
than 60 feet or more in the Tampa
Bay area and south. As the levels
drop around Jacksonville, more
water flows from this .area to
compensate. -,
Ground water withdrawal in
that area-more than 24 million
gallons a day-is significantly


greater than in the Suwannee
district, but this district is still
affected.
Minnis said it is difficult to
split responsibility between the
Suwannee and St. Johns River
water management districts
and important to realize that
Suwannee alone does not have
the funding available to address
these issues.
On the other hand, a map
projecting the impact to water
levels through 2030 shows the
drawdown spreading throughout
northern Bradford County if no
action is taken.
Minnis said counties need
to become engaged in process
because it is going to impact
water use locally. Part of regional
water supply planning involves
developing a menu of alternative
water sources that local
governments will have to identify
when approving developments,
including the associated costs.
The goals- going forward
include making sure there is an
adequate water supply, ensuring
water quality is not degraded
and supporting economic growth
by allowing for reasonable
beneficial users and make sure
the plan meets district and local
needs.
Minnis said he hopes to
return annually to provide
similar updates to the county
commission.


Landfill moves forward on land purchase for borrow pit


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD

Telegraph Editor
The New River Solid Waste
Association is closer to acquiring
property in Union County from
Plum Creek Timberlands to serve
as a borrow pit.
Staff at the landfill use soil for
a number of uses, including daily
ground cover in the disposal
cells. Supply from the on-site
borrow pits is limited,,a.id..the.
association wants to use the clay-
rich soil that is left for future cell
construction. Hence the need to
find a soil supply elsewhere.
Rather than contract with
a company that would both
source and transport the soil, the
landfill association is looking at
purchasing its own source. The
association's executive director,
Darrell O'Neal, has presented
the board with around 130 acres
located just three miles from the
landfill.
The land is located on Northeast
S.R. 121 near the. Union County
line, and the landfill has offered
almost .$2,992 an acre, which
would total nearly $389,000,
depending on the final survey.
O'Neal assured the board
they had chosen 130 dfres with
the least amount of unusable
wetlands possible. Still, required
setbacks from the property's edge
and the wetlands will leave only
a fraction available for mining
dirt.

because of the number of kids
and families involved in Little
League. According to City Clerk
Lisa Harley, one field, located at
the school, has had to serve nine
teams in recent times.
In addition to the new ball field,
picnic facilities and additional
playground equipment could be
added, too, and the basketball
court could be renovated.
Armstrong was doubtful,
however, that there was enough
area to accomplish a biking
path since it would need to be at
minimum a mile long.
* Though it is a larger piece
of land, it could not be fully
developed. For one thing, a buffer
needs to be maintained between
the park activities and the
neighboring houses as there were
concerns expressed about noise.
Solutions for that could include
more vegetation, fencing or even
the construction of a berm.
For safety, lighting would be
added to both parks.
Armstrong is going to look
into other grant possibilities for
walking/biking paths in the city,


but the other major grant the
city is going for at the current
time is for sewer construction.
A Community Development
Block Grant is needed to begin
the second phase of the project,

qualify-close to 70 percent of
those surveyed-would receive
free sewer hookups because they
fall within the low-to-moderate
income range.
There are no estimates on the
ultimate cost of the second phase
because the project is still in the
engineering phase. Such projects
are costly, but should actually be
less so for Lawtey since it is not
building its own treatment plant.
The city has an agreement
with the Florida Department of
Corrections, which is handling
sewage treatment for the city.
The first phase of sewer
construction-funded by a
combination of money from
USDA (some of which has
to be paid back), the water
management district and money
the. city received in litigation


with the first contractor who
walked off the job-will place
130 customers on sewer east of
301. Work has been delayed by
soil problems but should proceed
once a source of compactable
soil is located.
Completion is expected by
March 2010, Harley said.
After the issues with the
original contractor, the lawsuit
and the loss of CDBG funds
that had been committed to the
project because the project was
not completed as expected, there
was not enough funding left to
place the entire city on the sewer
system. Lawtey took the $1.68
million it had remaining and
focused on running sewer to the
east side of the city because of its
proximity to the existing prison
sewer facilities:
Phase II would add another
135 customers. The CDBG
funding the city is pursuing for
next year would at least begin
that process.
Future growth will depend-on
the city being able to offer both
water and sewer utilities to new
businesses and residents.

Marching Tigers offer a

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
This year, you won't want
to miss the halftime show
performed by the Union
County Tigers Marching Band.
When coming up with ideas
for the show year after year,
Director Kelly Dorsey said
she enjoys listening to musical
arrangements she picks up
mostly from the Internet and
keeps a running list of songs
she really likes.
"I may use a song one year,
or may use it five years from
now. It mostly depends upon
the band students and their
capabilities," Dorsey said.
A song Dorsey said she's
had on that list is "These Boots
are made for Walkin'," a song
made famous in 1966 by Nancy
Sinatra. Dorsey said she just
loved the song and ended up
building this year's entire band
show around it.
The theme for -this year's
show is Early America and
begins with the band taking the
field with "Tennessee Waltz," a
song recorded by a number of
artists since the 1950s.
The Tigeretts put on their
own boots and dance to
Sinatra's song before the band
breaks into something a little
bit different this year. Dorsey
has added a comedy portion to
the show.
"This portion of the sho,,Vwas!

audience," Dorsey said. "We've
had such great audience support
through the years, so we want
to give them something fun to
watch."
.Former band student Cody
Tempest, turned Florida Gator
Marching Band member, has
returned to his alma mater as
Dorsey's assistant director
this year. Tempest wrote a
percussion feature. that is sure
to delight the audience with
a rendition of "I've Been
Working on the Railroad"
followed by the closing of the
show with the old Southern
hymn, "Precious Lord,Take My
Hand," interestingly enough
written by a Baptist minister
named Thomas A. Dorsey (no
relation) in 1932.
James Godwin returns as
the Tiger Marching Band's
percussion coordinator.
Patsy Fortner is the Tigerette
coordinator who has helped
the squad prepare for its flag
routines and dance performance
choreographed by June Stober,
who also choreographs
performances for the Florida
Gator marching band auxiliary.
Dorsey said she is very
excited about this year's
halftime show.
"We have 90 band students
with lots of returning members,"
Dorsey said. There are 24
new members to this year's
marching band. Just before the
sftart"6f 's6b"61, band iiienibers
survived two ye�es isvery hot,


all-day practices leading up to a
final parent night performance
attended by more than 400
parents and band fans. *
"The students did a great
job during the two week camp,
and I'm sure those who were
there will agree the efforts were
well demonstrated during the
performance. I have had the
opportunity to meet so many of
our parents and their enthusiasm
is infectious," Dorsey said:
She topped the end of 'camp
off with a treat for the students:
Captain Mitch Andrews of the
Union County Volunteer Fire
Department showed his support
for the band by offering an
engine truck to provide water
for a giant-sized slip-n-slide for
the kids to run and play in.
"After all their hard work;
I got the most pleasure out of
watching the kids run and squeal
and play," said Dorsey. "It is so
nice to live in a community that
will do something like this for
our kids."
Even after those grueling hot
days of band camp, Dorsey
said a number of students
came back for more, asking if
they could work in some extra
rehearsals. "We have such good
leadership this year and I'm
sure our audience will not be
disappointed when they see the
show," Dorsey said. To contact
Dorsey, learn more about the

Honda Owners Left


Out in the Cold

Local Honda Dealer Welcomes Them with Open Arms


Gainesville, FL
The Government's C.A.R.S. or Cash
for Clunkers program was wildly successful.
Consumers traded in older, gas guzzling
vehicles for new, safer, more fuel efficient
models with government rebates up to
$4,500. Amidst the jubilee of new car
sales, a particular group found them-
selves excluded from the excitement and
opportunities. Owners of late model
Hondas who thought they would qualify
found that they were left out in the cold
due to the Government's strict federal
guidelines.
Now that the Government's
program is over, local Honda dealer
Wade Raulerson Honda at 3801 North

current Honda owners a chance with Wade

"With so many vehicles being

auctions and everyone is searching for a
way to fill their lot and keep prices low.
We figured who better to offer up to
$4,500 for their trade-in than current
Honda owners who may have felt
snubbed during the Government
program," added Dillon.
Those who were unable to qualify for
the Government's Cash for Clunkers

Times Staff Writer
Union County High School
sophomore Isaac Sulsona
has been named as a national
winner in the Reach for the
Stars Rocket Contest.
To Sulsona's surprise, his
win was announced by science
teacher Renae Allen during a
10ot grade assembly held on
Aug. 28.
Sulsona first won the high
school's competition during
last school year, making him
eligible to enter the national
competition. Students in
Allen's Earth/space science
honors class participated in a
local Reach for the Stars rocket
contest. During this phase of
the competition, students were
required to build and launch
a solid-fuel powered rocket.
As required by contest rules, a
target spot was labeled 20 feet
from the launch pad.

Sulsona won with an average

Keeping law and order at T.H.E.


no easy task


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Starke Police Captain Don
Spriggle has been assigned to
.theT.H.E.Apartments beat since
2001. Sometimes he's making
This rounds, sometimes he drops
in on his own time to see that
housing development tenants
and their visitors are calm and
costly law-abiding. Once in
while he gets paid by housing
development management to
he the development's courtesy
cop, but usually not. Nor does
�Je get additional rewards out of
the Starke Police Department.
He has tried to get other
Starke police officers to take
shifts in the development, but
they decline. Even Spriggle
admits it's the hardest-edged
beat in Bradford County.
"I want to say right up front,"
Spriggle said, "that there are
some fine people at T.H.E.
Apartments. Nice people,
Godly people." Godly or not,
he knows most of them by
name. He said he believes in
positive social interactions with
people on his beat. He visits.
with tenants and knows their
history. Some are in their 80s
and 90s and he makes note of
that.
Nice guy aside, he's seen it
all: drugs, domestic violence,
prostitution, fires, elderly
dementia, even a murder.
"A man killed his brother
over $200," the officer said.
A tenant muttered to Spriggle


the name of the man who did it
and kept on walking. "The man
who did the crime is in prison
now," Spriggle said.
In a well-kept file drawer in
his office at the Starke police
station, the captain pulls out
paper bags filled with stuff he's
found in T.H.E.'s parking lot.
One neatly folded brown
paper bag holds 61 small plastic
baggies, the kind popular with
drug dealers. That paper bag is
labeled April 4, 2006.
"I found all of those in the
front parking lot one morning
in 30 minutes," he said.
In anotherbagisa hypodermic
needle and a syringe. It was
outside an apartment he'd been
watching.
"I don't keep these as
evidence," he said. "I wanted
to keep these so when the
management tried to say 'This
is a drug-free community,' I
can show them it's not." he
said, shaking the bags as if in
somebody's face.
Spriggle knows the buildings
by heart, and has drawings of
the apartments by number. He's
counted the doors; he's counted
the windows.
He has tried to make sure
everyone-tenants, emergency
crews and dispatchers- know
that when you call for help
at T.H.E., you make sure
everybody knows which of
the two entrances to take.
Someone's life could depend
on it, including the emergency
responder's.


None of the apartments in
the complex have a front and a
back door, he said. Some may
have two ingress/egress doors,
but both face outward toward
the same central courtyard.
Management tells residents
not to put furniture in front
of windows at the back of the
apartment, in case they have
to jump out. That's fine for
residents on the ground floor,
but what about the people
upstairs, the residents point
out.
A few year ago, Spriggle
fought for, and got, city street
lights throughout the complex.
Intruders shot the lights out
for a while, but the officer's
response was to number each
of the dozen or so fixtures on a
map of the complex and report
them by number directly to the
city's operations manager. The
broken lights got fixed in a
jiffy, Spriggle said. These days,
they pretty much stay lit..
It's important to know who
lives at T.H.E., who's visiting
and who needs to be told to
move along. He has notebooks
with photographs of the exterior
of every apartment with every
head of household with a name
on the lease in each apartment.
He gets lists of known legal
residents in each apartment
too.
You can't help but notice that
all of them, on page after page,
are female.
"The biggest problem we
have in here are not the tenants,"


he said. "It's the
hangers on: the
ex-husbands or
boyfriends, fathers
of children or older
sons or younger
grandsons. After a
while, it gets to the
point that people
who trespass aren't
related to anybody
here. They just
come here to
do what they
do because they
believe they'll get
away with it."
In 2004, Spriggle
and the Starke
police issued 41
trespass citations at
the development.
He knows how
many were issued
the year after, and
the year after that.
The Starke
officer has tried
to make friends
with children
in the housing
development.
He passed out
candy, or let them
ride to the store


in his unmarked
vehicle, which
upset some parents, and the
police department didn't care
much for it much either. In
some cases, parents simply
didn't want their kids making
friends with the po-po, slang
for police.


Starke Police Capt. Don Spriggle.


Resistance broke down over
time, and Spriggle's unmarked
car became known around the
complex as the candy machine.
He once loaned the vehicle
to some out-of-town detectives
who were casing one apartment
while looking for a suspect.


When the -visiting
detectives rolled into
the parking lot in
Spriggle's vehicle, the
officers thought they
were driving an ice
cream truck when the
kids came running.

Spriggle and his
3 wife have taken, some
of the T.H.E. kids to
their church or fed
them in their home.
They've taken them
to nearby lakes, where
children saw a body
of water or a jet ski
for the first time.
The Starke cop is
worried about the
transition the complex
is undergoing these
' days. Some- elderly
residents who live in
first floor apartments
at T.H.E. will
now live in upper
floor apartments
at Whispering
Oaks, which has no
elevators. He's not
sure they can climb
the stairs.
He's also worried
about residents, who
haven't been told where they
will go or whether they will
receive any assistance to get
there. He's afraid they are about
to be dumped and he knows the
tenants themselves are afraid of
that as well.

church runs fundraiser


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The Abilene Missionary
Baptist Church in Putnam
Hall held daylong events last
Saturday, all of them designed
to have fun, make the church
and the community more visible
and raise some money.
According to Abilene's
Youth Minister, Tim Flowers,
the funds will-buy robes for the
youth choir.
Earlier this year, the church
held a barbecue and youth day,
to raise funds to take the youth
groups to Busch Gardens. By


the time the big day arrived,
Flowers and the church had
raised enough to take 60 young
people and chaperones to the
Tampa theme park.
Last Saturday's program
included a slow pitch softball
tournament, a car show and a
basketball tournament in the
afternoon. Which followed, of
course, the church picnic and
barbecue lunch.
On Saturday morning, there
were slow pitch teams visiting
from Starke, Palatka and Green
Cove Springs. Barbecue smoke
hovered over the grounds and
tents were set up for shade. A


number of Speedville residents
were also on hand from north
of Keystone Heights.
The real showpiece of the
day was the new church and
community softball field.
Putnam Hall resident and
Clay Electric employee John
L. Smith donated an open
field across the way from
the church, with instructions
that if the young people and
the community cleaned it up
they could have it. After a
month or so of cutting grass
and removing the prickly pear
cactuses, there's now a new
softball field with real clay and

Putnam Dems talk shop

and.socialize at gathering


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
As thousands of people from
around the world paid tribute
to Senator Edward Kennedy
last Friday, the Putnam County
Democratic Party gathered
at a Melrose vineyard to
get acquainted and see what
everyone had in common.
Putnam's Democratic Party
Chairman Rosemary Anderson
said "I think (Kennedy) should
be an inspiration to everyone,
given the many issues he
fought for that affect just about
everybody-minimum wage,
prescription medicine, civil
rights, immigration and now
healthcare reform."
Anderson pointed out a
number of issues Democrats
would be addressing in the


coming election year. On the
national front those would be
health care and the economy.
On the state level, there will
be a fight for Mel Martinez's
senate seat, the governorship
and cabinet positions.
In Putnam County, there will
be two county commission seats
and Palatka's mayoral slot.
Among the mayoral
candidates for will be Vernon
Myers, husband of Linda
Myers who ran against Charles
Van Zant Sr. for the district's
House of Representatives seat
last year.
A number of Lake Region
residents attended last Friday
evening's event, which included
a buffet dinner. The confab was
held at Felicity Trueblood's
Meadowmere Vineyards off
S.R. 21 outside of Melrose.

he said.
"Once the economy recovers,

Scott, who also said there had
been number of inquiries about
locating or relocating to Lawtey.
Not only will there be a direct

are excited.

Ray Shuford has been in
law enforcement since he was
19 years old, but approaching
retirement in a few years, he
knew he wanted to do something
different, so he opened the
Subway restaurant in Lawtey
this past March.
His father, the, late George
Shuford, had a gas station at
the 301 site for years, and then
it was leased to an auto repair
business until Shuford decided
to redevelop the property and
turn it into the city's first free-
standing fast food franchise.
He is assisted by his wife,
Patty, a nurse, as well as his
mother, Gloria, who will come
and direct from the sidelines.
Calling it fast food belies the
experience Shuford and family
hope they are creating for their
customers. Most orders 'are
placed to go, but Shuford hopes
customers are taking away more
than a sandwich.
"I can't change the product, but
I can change their experience,"
Shuford said of his customers.

Last Tuesday, two men wearing

that the apartment complex

Starke's 631 st prepares for deployment in Wisconsin

Tigers head into season


with 36-0 preseason win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Offensive, defensive and
special teams players all got
into the act as the Union
County football team
outgained host Hamilton
County by more than 300
yards in a 36-0 preseason
kickoff classic win Aug. 28 in
Jasper.
The Tigers got 116 all-
purpose yards (8-71 rushing
land 3-45 receiving) from
running back Justin Tyson.
The first half featured two
touchdown passes by
quarterback Chris Alexander
that helped-along with a 41-
yard punt return for a
touchdown by Adam Cason-
stake the Tigers to a 20-0
halftime lead. The last score of
the half came on a 10-play, 88-
yard drive that was capped by
Alexander hooking up with
Quentin Johnson on a 13-yard
slant pass in the end zone as


time expired.
Still, head coach Andrew
Zow thought his offensive unit
was plagued by mistakes at
times. Those mistakes never
hurt the Tigers as the defensive
unit turned in an outstanding
performance, holding
Hamilton to 38 yards in the
first half and 66 yards overall.
The Trojans gained just 14
yards on 23 carries.
"Our defense played
relentless," Zow said. "We
stayed after it. Even though we
gave up some plays, we stayed
after it. Our linebackers are
playing great. Dalton
(Cochran) and Mason (Dukes)
sort of stepped up tonight, and
Raymond Randolph stepped
up; too."
Cochran set the tone early
for the game, which had the
teams' varsity starters playing
the first three quarters. His
bone-jarring tackle on the first
play from scrimmage resulted

On a mild late-summer
afternoon, a military convoy
pulled up to the fuel point..
Soldiers in body armor
dismounted from the dusty
Humvees, rifles ready and
their eyes keenly scanning the
perimeter.
They didn't let their guard
down or remove their
equipment; their senses were
heightened and their weapons
were ready, just in case. This
wasn't Iraq, but for the
members of the 631" l
Maintenance Company it
seemed like it because in
another month they will be
deployed to southwest Asia.
More than 180 members of
the Florida Army National
Guard unit from Starke were
conducting pre-deployment
training at Fort McCoy, Wis.,
in late August. The unit
specializes, in maintenance.of
wheeled vehicles, weapons and
communications equipment,
but the upcoming mission will
include security of. convoy
operations in northern Iraq:
The 631"' is scheduled to leave
Fort McCoy in mid-
September.
.For 22-year-old Pvt.
Fawziyya Harris-one of the .
unit's newest members-the
deployment will be a chance to
grow as both a person and a
soldier. During a break from
training, Harris stood in a sun-
bathed motor pool wearing
body armor and Kevlar helmet,
her M-16 rifle pointed at ,the
ground. Harris and nearly 30


members of her unit were
practicing convoy procedures;
they were learning to be alert
and . ready-even during
breaks.
"I'm pretty excited, but
nervous," said Harris, a
resident of Port St. Lucie. "I'm
expecting a lot of experience, a
.lot of changes, a lot of mind-
opening things."
As this is her first
deployment with the National
Guard-she joined last year-
she is anxious, b\t. looking
forward to the opportunity.
"My stomach's in knots,"
Harris said, hiding any
anxieties behind a steady voice
and her jet-black sunglasses.
"It's something I had to prove
to myself. I actually
volunteered to come with this
unit."
Nearby, another soldier
wearing a combat patch was
looking at a map and
discussing convoy routes with
his team. Forty-year-old Staff
Sgt. Wyman Gleaton from
Middleburg was preparing for
his sixth deployment to
southwest Asia.
"I've got a lot of experience
out on the road, being able to
pick out (improvised explosive
devices), and a lot of
experience about what to do
after you get hit by one,"
Gleaton, who has served in
both Afghanistan and Iraq,
confidently said. "And I try to
pass that on to these younger
guys and give them a heads-

Gleaton said that during his.
last deployment with the South
Carolina National Guard, he
conducted approximately 300
convoy operations and nearly
50 recovery missions. He said
he feels his job as a non-
commissioned officer during
the pre-deployment training is
to pass his experience on to the
younger soldiers like Harris
and make sure they have an
easier time in a combat zone
than he did.
"I don't want these guys to

had," Gleaton said. "I'd like
them to be ahead of the curve."

A HISTORICAL LOOK AT BRADFORD COUNTY

What's in a -
name? Ask ,
Brooker (or
Ward City) --"
(Information for this history
came from an article written- -
by Sue Ellen Smith in the 110th
anniversary issue of the
Telegraph.) People who live in
the small town of Brooker,
which lies about 18 miles
southwest of Starke and serves -- -
mainly as a bedroom
community for both
Gainesville and Starke, might .
-get confused about exactly
where they live if they have to
file any type of legal
document. According to many
legal records, the town's
official name is Ward City, but
the town limits sign says
Brooker. The town was 00.-
incorporated as Brooker.and if .
residents told someone they -
lived in Ward City, the person - - -
being spoken to would ..
probably not have a clue if that PP
was even in Bradford County.
The confusion began in the
town's earliest history.
Thomas R. Collins purchased a
piece of property about a mile The Godwin store in Brooker.


southwest of present-day
Brooker in 1892. Soon
afterward, he petitioned the
government to establish a post
office there. In 1894 he got his
post office, for which he was
postmaster. But if mail is to be
delivered to a place, it must
have a name that can appear on
the address. Collins decided to
name the place Brooker after a
friend, Ed Brooker, who was a
farmer in the area.
But the same year that
Collins was granted a post
office, the railroad which ran
from Sampson City to
LaCrosse, through Brooker,
was completed. Emra P. Ward,
son of an early settler in the
area, had deeded the right of
way through what is now
Brooker to a company building
the railroad. The right of way
was sold to the Ambler
Lumber Company of
Jacksonville for $1 with the
understanding that a' railroad
was to be built on the land
within three years. The deal for
the right of way was struck
with the provision that the
station slated for construction
in Brooker would be called
Ward City in honor of Ward's
cooperation over the right of
way. In 1894, when the
railroad which became


dmra Ward
nicknamed "Peggy" was
completed, the station was
built and emblazoned with the
name Ward. City. Since in
those days most people who
arrived in any town arrived by
train, most people called the
place Ward City. However,
Collins recognized the
advantages of having a railroad
station nearby and bought a lot
in Ward City for $30 and

"Ah.... Fresh

It's that time of year again
When we send our children off
to college. I can hear the cry
"Fresh Meat" from the Halls of.
Ivy. The college institution
salivates with glee, the same
way Principal Agatha
Trunchbolt of the Movie
"Matilda" did, at the sight of a


new student. During their
education many will be
indoctrinated over and over
again, tearing down'what our
churches and we parents have
tried to instill into our
children. They will not be just
presenting different views. It
will be a methodical
undermining what many of us
believe is the essence of life. I
do appreciate the teachers,
who do not have an agenda to

advance; who try to let the data
speak for itself. It is a tough
job because all of us are prone
to have our own agenda.
Our children will be taught
that evolution is not just a
secular theory of life. They
will be taught it is the great
underlining biological fact.
Evolution, if it occurred,
occurred in the past, and is not
open to. validation by the
scientific method; though
statistical analysis may give an
idea of its probability or
improbability. Likewise the
theory of Creationism can not
be proved or disproved.
Natural selection, different
from evolution, can be tested,
the difference between the two
should be explained. Do not
use natural selection as a proof
for evolution.
I ask any doctor or professor
to give a single example found
in life that cannot be explained
by the creative process of an
all powerful creator. If there is
not an example, then evolution
is a theory; a theory you either
choose to believe or not to
believe.
Can anyone answer this
statement posed by Stephen
Meyer PhD?
. "Without DNA there is no
self replication; but without
self. replication there is no
natural selection. So you can't
use natural selection to explain
the origin of DNA, without
assuming the existence of the
very thing you are trying to
explain"

moved his Brooker post office
there. Before the railroad was
bullt, Collins had to travel a
rough several miles northeast
to Litesville several times a
week to deliver and. pick up
mail. From the lot in Warnt
City, he could walk to the
station to pick up the mail.
When people arrived in
town, they saw the railroad
station labeled Ward City and
the post office labeled
Brooker. If you mailed a letter,
you gave your address as
Brooker. If you were being
visited by family or friends,
you told them to get off the
train at the Ward City stop. It
was all very confusing. The
confusion remained until 1914
when Ward City residents
asked that the post office's
name be changed from
Brooker so that one name
would serve the town. The
postmaster at the time was
afraid this would cause
problems with mail delivery
because Florida already had a
Wardville and Ward Station.
That concern prompted postal
officials to decline to change
the name of the post office.
Town citizens, who were tired
of explaining the two names to
_every out-of-towner they dealt
with, took the Ward City sign
down off the train station and
replaced it with a sign reading
Brooker. The town has been
called exclusively Brooker
ever since - unless you go to
the courthouse. No official
steps were ever taken to
change the legal name of'the
town, so all the deeds and
court documents still list it as
Ward City.
Brooker has been a farming
community, ever since it was
first settled and is still known
for having rich farmland.
Potatoes, melons, corn, beans
and squash were major crops.
Tobacco was also grown.
From the 30s through the 50s it
was not unusual for 12 or more
tractor-trailers to come 'to
Brooker every day to take the
produce to market. Farmers
brought their crops to town to
meet the trucks. Some produce
was also shipped by rail during
that time, but in early days
crops went almost exclusively
via train. In the 20s and 30s,
Peggy made two round trips to
Brooker every day. The wood-
burning engine carried
passengers and freight - and
a lot of affection' from local
folk for years. In the 20s and
30s Brooker had -five stores.,
including a hardware store, a
general merchandise store and
three grocery stores. The town
-barber shop was run by L.A.
Brown until he sold it to
Lonnie Parker in the late 30s.
The streets were dirt, as were
most streets in the towns of
Bradford County. A graded
dirt road was built in the 20s
into Starke. There was no
paved road to Gainesville and
the trip was too long to be
made over dirt roads. Most
Brooker residents had little to

oil mill was built in Brooker.
Tung nuts, grown on trees,
were shipped to Brooker to be
ground for oil extraction.
Sometimes the nuts were
shipped from as far away as
Alabama. The oil extracted in
,the grinding was used t6 make
varnish and paint. The nut
grounds were packed in cakes
and shipped to feed mills for
use there. The highly
flammable grounds were said
to have caused frequent fires
on the rail cars which
transported them. Tung oil was
a big industry for the area until
paint manufacturers began
using water-based paints in the
mid-1950s. Demand for tung.
oil declined. The trees, which
had been planted to supply
nuts, became unproductive due
to age and it was no longer
economically feasible to plant
additional groves. The final
blow for the Brooker industry
came when the plant near town
burned to the ground in the late
50s. The plant was moved to
Gainesville since the Brooker
groves of tung oil trees were
no longer as productive. In
1962 a new industry opened in
the Brooker area, just a mile or
so northwest of town. Florida
Hydrocarbon Company, now
Enron Gas, built a plant which
served as a transmission and
processing station for natural
gas produced in other places.
The plant employed fewer than
50 people since it was mostly
fully automated machinery. It
still employs less than 50, even
though an additional storage
pipeline was built in 2000.
There are about three stores
still operating in town and the
Elementary school is still in'
operation there.
Brooker was reincorporated
in 1950 after the charter had
been lapsed for about 40 years.
The town council governs the
hamlet, which has its own
water plant, but does not have
sewer service.

do with Gainesville in the 20s
and 30s. A sawmill and a grits
mill were in Brooker in those
days and a cotton gin operated
there until the late 20s.
The Depression dealt with
Brooker as it dealt with most
towns. Times were hard and
families survived in any way
they could. According to
longtime Brooker resident C.E.
"Sue" Davis, who acted as a
correspondent for both the_
Telegraph and the Gainesville
Sun, a Civilian Conservation
Corps camp was established in
Brooker during the Depression
and acted as an enlistment
center for Florida. The CCC
.and the Works Progress
'Administration (WPA) were
established by the' federal
government as a .means .of
keeping people working.and
making an income.: New
recruits for the CCC. were
enlisted every three months'at
.Brooker, Davis said.
Replacements would often
remain at Brooker temporarily
until they Were shipped out to
places where they: strung
phone lines, built forest roads,
cut fire lines, and completed
other tasks which benefited the
general population of'an, area,

*40s saw the economy improve
as it did all-over the nation.
World War II loomed and
Blanding swung into full
operation training troops.-Up
until, that time, permanent
Brooker residents had 'Allo
worked in Brooker. But with
good jobs waiting at Blanding,
they began commuting to
work. (Today, most Brooker
residents work outside the city
limits. The establishment of
paved roads into Gainesville
later made that city - and its
booming job market - very
accessible to Brooker
residents.)
The war economy of the 4,0s
brought improvements to
Brooker, including the
construction of a farmer's
market to handle produce
shipments. That market is now

are ready to head overseas.
"Until they actually deploy
in theater, we in the Florida
Army National Guard feel like
we are still responsible for
their training," Fleming said.
"On occasion we've had to
address issues, but by and


large we're just looking at
their training. Also, we're
looking to see what kind of
new and innovative methods
are being used at mobilization
stations.
"We want to dome up and
show them that what they're
doing is important. They have
worked hard, they represent
the Florida Army National
Guard and we want to thank
them for that."
Hosford told the gathered
soldiers one of the most
important responsibilities they
will have during the
deployment is "keeping the
lines of communication" open
with their families and
employers back home.
"Soldiers get into the areas
of operation in Iraq and


Afghanistan and their daily
(operational tempo) is so high
that a lot of times they lose
sight of the fact that their
families are back in the rear
and thinking about them,"
Hosford said.
As the training day came to
a close, the unit's senior
enlisted soldier, 1st Sgt. Ellis
Sirmans, took the general and
command sergeant major on a
tour of a mock-up forward
operating base at Ft. McCoy.
This is where soldiers are
given a preview of life on a
base in Iraq, which includes
security details, austere
conditions and even the
occasional insurgent attack.
Sirmans said his unit was
eagerly anticipating its
deployment and that the high-

4 new coaches join Bradford High football program


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
You would expect the
Bradford High School football
coaching staff to go through
some growing pains this
season with the addition of
four new members, and that
may very well happen, but the
coaches have seemed to form a
bond already that has created
an enjoyable experience in
these early stages of the
season.
New coach Jacob Scott said
he is having a "blast," while
Price Harris, another
newcomer, said he was
recently telling his wife he is
having the most fun since he
coached at Leesburg High
School. That was eight years
ago.
"The coaches make it fun
because we get along so well,"
Harris said. "We don't always
agree, but we get along real
well."
Harris and Scott are joined
by Rob Charles and Mike
Ruszkowski as the new
additions to this year's staff.

Price Harris
Harris, who is Bradford's
defensive coordinator, played
at Madison County High
School and graduated in 1993.
One of his fondest memories
'from that time was when the
Cowboys visited Starke and
played the Tornadoes as
Bradford celebrated its 100"t
homecoming. Madison won
18-12.
"That's a memory I'll never
forget," Harris said.'
Harris went to Bethel
College in North Newton,
Kan., and played one year of

football. He remained at the
school, though, to work toward
his degree.
Coaching was actually
something Harris had not
planned on doing. His degree
is in Bible theology. He had
plans of entering the ministry,
but the lure of being around
the sport of football was hard-
to resist. In fact, he felt God
led him into coaching to help
mold boys into men.
"I realized there's a ministry
wherever you are," Harris said.
"You don't have to be a pastor
to be a minister.
Harris started coaching at
his high school alma mater in
1996 under head coach Randy
McPherson, who was his
offensive line coach when he
was in school. It proved to be a
memorable year as Madison

High graduate,

staff.


championship. It was the start


of a building process that has
developed Madison into a state
power. Harris recalls how the
players then were intimidated
by playing Bolles, which
defeated the Cowboys in the
third round of the playoffs that
year.
"Now, those kids aren't
intimidated by anybody,"
Harris said.
In 1997, Harris finished the
work necessary to earn his
degree. He then joined Bud
O'Hara's staff at Leesburg
High School in 1998. He
coached there four years,
coaching the offensive line the


first two years, serving as
offensive coordinator the third
year and then finally serving as
defensive coordinator. ,
The experience at Leesburg
gave Harris a bit of a Bradford
High School connection as
O'Hara was good friends with
former Bradford head coach
David Hurse.
"I was able to get to know
coach Hurse during those
times because coach Hurse
used to come down and go .to
practices," Harris said.
Harris became Williston's
head coach in 2002. After two
years there, he moved to
Georgia, joining Rick
Darlington's staff at Valdosta
High School.
He spent one year there
before moving back to Florida
and taking the reigns as the.
head coach at Taylor County
High School. He coached there
four years through last season.
"I was let go," Harris said.
"We changed superintendents
last-year. They wanted to go in
a different, direction, which I
can understand."
Harris had known Bradford
head coach Steve Hoard for
quite a while. He called Hoard
one day just to see how things
were going. They talked for a
while and came- to the
conclusion that Harris would
be a good fit on the Bradford
staff.
So far, it has been a good fit.

See COACHES, p. 9B


End zone hard to find in BHS classic


One trip across the goal line
was all the varsity pand junior
varsity teams from Bradford
and Williston could muster in
an Aug. 28 preseason classic
hosted by Bradford that saw
the varsity Tornadoes play the
Red Devils to a scoreless tie
and the junior varsity Devils
win 6-0.
The junior varsity teams
squared off against each other
in the first half. Bradford won
the coin toss and chose to
receive ball. The Tornadoes
took the first possession, on
their 20-yard line .(-ib
preordained rules, there was no
kickoff) and showed their.
youth early when the first hike
from the center fell to the
ground on a bad exchange.
Running back Antwuan
Jackson quickly gave the Big
Red faithful something to
stand up and holler about as he
darted around the right end
carrying the ball for the initial
first down of the season.
The offensive highlights
were limited, however, and the
rest of the half became an air
and ground battle that no team
definitively won.
The Williston offense set up
in a shotgun formation with
four wide receivers and tested
the JV secondary on every
play. With approximately four
minutes left in the first quarter,
a gang-tackling Tornado
defense led by freshman BJ.
McNeal forced a fourth-and-
long. The Tornadoes then
denied a long Red Devil pass
attempt.
Bradford's offensive effort
came up short in yards and
points in the half, giving
footing to the theory that early
on in the season the offense*
has to catch up with the
defense. JV head coach Mike
Ruszkowski knows he's got a
good- young group of talent
and has to bring the offense up
to speed.
"We've had a lot of shifting
(offensive) guys around the
last three days," Ruszkowski
said.
The JV will have , to
overcome a lot of obstacles
this year with injuries to key
role players and the loss of
three would-be starters who
are making their mark on the
varsity team. �
Bradford's varsity unit was
on the field most of halftime.
Fans got a good look at the
2009 squad. From the stands,
the first impression is, in a
word, small. Yes, there is only,
one starter on the offense over
200 pounds. Yes, there is only
one starter on defense over 200
pounds.
The second impression you
get of this year's team is
focused. From the second
players started position drills
on the field at halftime they
were playing football.
Williston brought the entire
traveling team- approximately
70 players-back onto the
field for warm-ups and the
approximately 30 players


suited up for the Tornadoes
didn't blink. Some of this
focus may be attributed to
attending an off-season
training camp that included
scrimmaging eight teams a day
in full pads.
The third impression of this
year's team is tough. Bradford
kicked off to Williston, with
the players looking for contact
as they streaked down the
field.
Like its JV team, Williston's
base offensive set is the
shotgun.,,&o..the pass-happy

Bradford defense forced them
to punt on their first series and
partially blocked the kick to
set up its first offensive
position on its own 30-yard
line.
Williston crowded, the line
of scrimmage to test freshman
Deandre Burch, who was at the
steering wheel of the Tornado
offense. He threw a perfect 10-
yard out on third-and-eight,
and though wide receiver
Tremaine Harris couldn't haul
in the pass, Burch displayed
arm strength and accuracy on
the play.

Defensive coordinator Price Harris has six years of head coaching experience,
having most recently guided the Taylor County program for four years.


COACHES
Continued from page 8B-

Harris admitted it is tough to
be a defensive coordinator
under a head coach who
worked previously as a
defensive coordinator, but said
the relationship has led to him
'doing things in a way he may
not have necessarily done them
in the past and Hoard to do
things .he may not have
necessarily done in the past.
"I think we're
complementing each other
very well," Harris said.
Harris, who also assists on
the offensive line, said the
experience thus far has been
fun, not just -because of the
coaches he works with, but
because of the dedication of
the players.
"They're coachable," Harris
said. of the players. "They're
working hard. What more can
you ask from a kid?"

Jacpb Scott
How many of us can look
back and say we definitively
knewv what we wanted to do
witl.our lives when we were in
the eighth grade? Scott, who
coaches the offensive linemen
at Bradfdrd, is one, saying that
was when he knew he wanted
to did nothing to deter him.
"';broke my leg and realized
I needed to be a part of
football for the rest of my
life,� said Scott, who played at
Midtlleburg High School.
"Thit's all I've ever seen
myself doing is coaching."
'Is coaching career began at
Ben.dictine College in
Atchi, soi. Kan. Scott went
there to'plaN football. He then
became a student assistant.
Following that, Scott moved
bacK to Florida, getting a
coaching job at Bishop Snyder
High School in Jacksonville.
He : would return to
Benedictine, though, as an
assistant offensive line coach
before coming back to Florida
to take the job at Bradford.
Scott said he wanted to be
closer to home, 'so when he
becarne aware of the open
position at Bradford, he
applied for it. He said Hoard
called him and after they
talked, they agreed he would
be aggood fit.
HM must be a good fit
because he said he gets along
with the other coaches and
they all have fun.
"e all like to get together,"
Scof said, "but the main thing
is we like to teach the kids and
we like to see them do what
we t ll them to do."
And the players at Bradford
High School are doing what
Sc6tlJand the other coaches tell
thei .
" they're very coachable,"
Sco said. "I would say 99.8
per nt of the offensive line is
co letely coachable. They
list! to everything you have
to S~."
t interaction with young
peo e has been rewarding for
Sc . He said he enjoys
hel g. mold young men,
wh er it's on the field or off
the eld. Being in a position to
hav a positive impact on a
yo g person's life makes one
feel ood at the end of the day,
he id.
"I aching has surpassed my
exp stations " Scott said.
"G ing to work with kids
eve day, you really do feel
like ou make a difference."

Ro Charles
CRarles spent two years
wooing as a regional manager
for Wachovia, earning a
masr of business
administration degree in the
pro ss, but it proved to
diff~ ult to stay away fromt
foo all, which is why he
app ed for a position at
Bra ,ord High School.
"B's hard to walk away from
coughing ) once you get
sucjd in," Charles said.
Carles, who coaches the
defesive secondary at BHS,
got kicked in as a volunteer at
his alma mater, Clay High
School in Green Cove Springs.


Being around the players was
something he enjoyed.
"It was captivating being
around them," he said. "I
found my passion in
coaching."
Charles graduated from Clay
High School in 1998, where he
played defensive end. He went
on to play at the junior college
level before transferring to
Fairmont (W.Va.) State
College. He was doing well
there, but wanted to see if he
could make his mark on a
program like FSU. He joined
the Seminoles as a walk-on,
playing first at safety and then
at linebacker. Charles said it
was a great experience as he
played a lot more than he
expected to as a walk-on.
Besides coaching at Clay,
Charles also coached at
Fleming Island and Englewood
high schools before working
for Wachovia.
Now that he's a part of the
action on Friday nights again,
Charles said it brings back
memories of his days playing
at Clay High School. Only this
time, he's the one instructing
players on what to do.
However, he said he-and other
coaches can only do so much.
It is those players who put
forth the effort in practices
who will make themselves
better in the long run.
As far as finding the right
motivational tactics to coax
that effort out of players,
Charles believes he witnessed
one of the best coaches in that
regard in ' FSU defensive
coordinator Mickey Andrews.
"I think he has mastered the
art of knowing how to push
each individual to his
capability and beyond,"
Charles said. "Not a -ot of
coaches kino6 ho" to do that."
It is a goal to help develop
good football players, but
Charles wants to have a more
far-reaching impact on


children's lives by the way he
conducts himself add how he
has made the most of his
opportunities despite what he
termed a "rough upbringing."
"I hope I'm helping these
kids become positive members
of society," Charles said.

Mike Ruszkowski
You can't teach an old dog
new tricks.
Ruszkowski, who is the head
junior varsity coach, but who
also works with the varsity
staff, attempts to evoke that
old saying, saying he's still
trying to learn a new offensive
system in the wing-T when
he's so used to running plays
out of the. wishbone or I-
formation.-
"I'm kind of rusty,"
Ruszkowski said. "I still find
myself calling bone or I-rigfit
plays. We have similar plays
out of each offense, but there
are some definite different
techniques."
It may be a learning
experience, but Ruszkowski
will most likely get it down.
He's been coaching football
too long not to. That includes a
stint of 33 years in various
capacities at Palatka High
School.
"I love football,"
Ruszkowski said. "It's one of
my passions."
Ruszkowski's coaching
career began as a graduate
assistant at West Virginia
University, where he said he
was fortunate to have the
opportunity to work under
Bobby Bowden. Then it was to
Palatka, where he was an
assistant on a team that won a
state championship in 1981.

season. (Titusville was also
coached by future Bradford
head coach Al Werneke.)
"Those two years were
great," Ruszkowski said. "We
had four undefeated seasons
there I was part of."
Ruszkowski coached at
Keystone Heights High School
for two years before retiring.
He worked as a volunteer last
year at Wilkinson Jr. High
School in Middleburg before
joining the Bradford * staff.
Ruszkowski wanted to teach
again and felt it was important
for him to work in the
community he lives in. He and
his wife, Sherry, moved to the
area after she was hired as the


executive director of the Arc
of Bradford County.
In the 14 months he's lived
there, Ruszkowski said you
couldn't ask for a better town
to live in than Starke. He also
found out there are a lot of
good kids there, something
contradictory to rumors he had
heard in other places.
"They're very nice young
men," Ruszkowski said. "They
want to learn the game.
They're working hard to do
so."
To see a freshman or
sophomore work hard so that
he can be a contributor to the
varsity team as a junior or
senior is the most rewarding
part of the job, Ruszkowski


said. He hopes he can play a
part as the junior varsity head
coach in helping that happen.
,"'If we can give them a good
feeling about football, they'll
stay with it," Ruszkowski said.
As a result, Ruszkowski
hopes the players' experiences
will better prepare them for
life. Most of them, if any, will
not go on to play in the NFL.
Many won't get an opportunity
to play beyond high school.
However, they can benefit
from having played football,
Ruszkowski said.
"It teaches you a lot about
everything," he said, "from the
discipline you have to go
through to the sacrifices you
make."

of breakdowns and missed
assignments common to
preseason play.
"I was pleased with the
execution," he said.


However, one area the coach
was not happy with was
turnovers. The Indians turned
,the ball over four times on
three fumbles and one
interception.
"We can't have turnovers,"
Dickinson said. "That's one
thing we preach. They can kill
us."
Fortunately, the Indians
were still able to outscore
Ridgeview despite the
miscues. One good thing was
that all of the turnovers
occurred on Ridgeview's half
of the field so as not to give
the Panthers any easy scoring
opportunities.
The , Panthers scored first,
putting a sustained drive
together that culminated with a
touchdown with approximately


five minutes left in the first
quarter. Ridgeview missed the
PAT, however.
Keystone running back
Reggie Thomas, a transfer
from Bradford High School,
tied the score when he broke
loose for an 18-yard
touchdown run. The successful
PAT put the Indians on top 7-6
with approximately six
minutes remaining in the half.
Thomas finished the game
with 84 yards on 10 carries,
while the Indians, as a team,
rushed for more than 100 yards
on 19 carries.
Lott completed 6-of-10
passes for 72 yards.
Defensively, the Indians
created some turnovers of their
own, getting an interception
each from Evan Harvey and


Zach Lambert. Harvey's
interception occurred after
Keystone had driven down -to
the Ridgeview 20 before
fumbling the ball away. The
Panthers immediately tried to
go downfield, with Harvey
picking the pass off and giving
the Indians the ball inside the
50;
The Keystone offense could
not take advantage of a second
chance, however, as the moved
downfield and fumbled the ball
again.

Injuries hurt junior
varsity Indians
Keystone's junior varsity
team, having lost two centers
to injuries, had trouble with
long snaps, which helped


Ridgeview score the go-ahead
touchdown with five seconds
remaining as the visiting
Panthers outscored the Indians
12-7.
The Indians, who lost their
starting center prior to the
classic and his backup during
the classic, forced a Ridgeview
turnover on the Keystone 5-
yard line to preserve their 7-6
lead. Keystone picked up a
couple of first downs, but
eventually had to punt. The
snap sailed over the punter's
head, giving Ridgeview the
ball at the Keystone 10 with 48
seconds remaining.
It was the third consecutive
snap that went over the
punter's head.
"It was a learning
experience for the kids that


you don't take anything for
granted," said head coach
Lantz Lowery, who is' now.
looking for someone who can'
fill the role of long snapper.
Overall, though, Lowery:
could see some positives in his
team's performance.
Quarterback Chandler Mann
and fullback Robbie Davis
played well on an offense that
starts eight freshmen, while
Davis scored on defense-with
an interception he returned
approximately 30 yards.
Besides the play of Davis,,
Lowery also singled out inside
linebacker Travis Raysin,
though he added everyone on
that side of the ball had a solid
game.
"We played well
defensively," Lowery said.


BHS, KHHS to hook up for seventh straight year


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's the opening of a new
football season'. For Bradford
and Keystone Heights high
schools, it will have a little
extra excitement as the two
square off against each other
Friday, Sept. 4, in Starke at
7:30 p.m.
In recent years, the
Tornadoes and the Indians
haven't met each other until
late October. A few times, a
playoff berth has hung in the
balance.
This year, however, the two
have nothing at stake but pride,
as they are no longer in the
same district. Not that pride is
not enough to play for.
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard reminded his players at
the team's Aug. 31 practice


that Keystone has won the last
three meetings.
Bradford and Keystone have
played each other the past six
years, with the Indians holding
a 4-2 advantage. This current
string of games began with a
47-10 win by Bradford in
2003, but following games
have been closer affairs.
Keystone won the last three
games by an average score of
20-11, with last year's contest
a 14-13 Indians win.
The Tornadoes fared better
during 1997-2000 when they
won three of four against
Keystone. The two teams did
not play each other in 2001
and 2002:
Keystone enters this contest
having earned a victory in its
.half of a preseason classic. The
Indians outscored Ridgeview


7-6, getting its lone score from
former Tornado Reggie
Thomas.
Thomas played a role in last
year's game, but wearing the
Scarlet and Gray colors. He
had an 18-yard reception and a
25-yard run to help the
Tornadoes score a touchdown
to pull within one point of the
Indians in' the fourth quarter.
Erik Burnal's PAT, however,
was blocked .by Keystone's
Zak. Davis, preserving
Keystone's 14-13 win.
That game was a tale of two
halves. Bradford's offense did
nothing in the first half,
gaining just 31 yards.
Keystone, meanwhile, scored
two touchdowns on Marcel
Robinson runs to take a 14-0
lead into the half.
Most of the Indians'


offensive, production, 'though,
was in the first quarter. They
gained 120 yards and got the
two scores from Robinson, but
Bradford's defense .held
Keystone to 110 yards the rest
of the game.
Keystone was also. the
beneficiary of turnovers in the
first quarter. Shane Jennings
recovered a Bradford fumble
on the first play from
scrimmage, giving the Indians
the ball at the Bradford 23.
That eventually led to
Robihson's 1-yard score.
Bradford's defense held
Keystone on the Indians' next
drive, holding Robinson to a 1-
yard gain on fourth-and-2 at
the Bradford 28. The next
play, however, the Tornadoes
turned the ball over as Chase
Chambers intercepted a pass'.


That led to a 5-yard
touchdown run by Robinson.
After struggling in the first
half, the Tornadoes showed
life on offense in the second
half. A 1-yard touchdown run
by quarterback Trey Winkler
pulled the Tornadoes to within
a touchdown in the third
quarter.
Bradford's next score,
following the two big plays by
Thomas in the fourth quarter,
was .a 30-yard pass from
Winkler to tight end Scott
Crews.
The Tornadoes had a couple
of opportunities to drive for
another score, but were forced
to punt once after Kyle Cravey
sacked Winkler for a 16-yard
loss and lost the ball another
time on a fumble, which was
recovered by Keystone's


Dillon Van Wagner.
Both teams would like to get
off to positive starts ,this
season as they try to rebound
from 3-7 seasons. The teams
had similar numbers as. the
Tornadoes scored 14 points per
game and allowed 21 per
game, while Keystone scored
11 per game and allowed 24 a
game. Each of the teams' three
wins were within their district.



That's what learning is.
You suddenly understand'
something you understood.
all your life, but in a new
way.

1919-, British Novelist

Page 12B TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR Sept. 3, 2009


Chris Alexander gets hit as he throws a pass in the
second quarter of the kickoff classic.


TIGERS'
Continued from page 1lB

Trojans, who went three-and-
out.
Eight tinies the Tigers
dropped Hamilton backs for 1-
yard gains or no gains, or
made tackles behind the line of
scrimmage. Two such plays
occurred on the Trojans' last
series of the half when Dukes
and Delmonte Givens made
tackles for no gain on
consecutive plays.
Union's offense, despite
making some mistakes that
concerned Zow, really had no
such struggles .with the
exception of the opening drive
of the second half. Josh Tyson
was dropped for no gain on the
Tigers' first play of the first
half, but Justin Tyson
responded with a 9-yard carry
on the next play.
The Tigers would go on to
put together a 13-play drive
that covered 50 yards before
they turned the ball over on
downs.
It was Cason who put the
first points on the board when
Hamilton was forced to punt
following its second
possession. Cason fielded a


short punt at the Hamilton 41
and took it all the way to the
end zone in the opening
minute of the second quarter.
Alexander's pass on the two-
point conversion fell
incomplete, but the Tigers led
6-0.
The next time the Union
offense got the ball, the result
was a 62-yard drive that
featured four carries for 35
yards by Justin Tyson. A 15-
yard gain by Tyson gave the
Tigers a first down at the
Hamilton 46. Alexander was
sacked on the next play, but
rebounded to throw a 9-yard
pass to Bryan Holmes. A 21-
yard scramble by Alexander
netted a first down and moved
the ball to the 24. Tyson then
carried the ball three straight
times for 20 yards, the third
carry resulting in first-and-goal
at the 4.
Hamilton defenders made
tackles for losses on the next
two plays, pushing Union back
to the 11, but on third down,
Holmes outjumped a defender
in the end zone to catch
Alexander's fade pass. and put
the Tigers upl12-0 with 4:35 to
play in the half. Randy
Randolph's run on the two-
point conversion made the
score 14-0.


A fumble recovery by Union
set the Tigers up for one more
scoring opportunity before the
half. They delivered with the
drive that was capped by
Johnson's 13-yard touchdown
reception. Alexander
completed four passes for 65
yards on the drive, with
Johnson catching three for 57
yards.
For the game, Alexander
completed 11-of-I16 passes for
140 yards.
Zow said it was a "great"
performance from his
experienced senior
quarterback, Alexander, who
finished the game I 1 l-of-16 for
140 yards and no interceptions,
but the play of Johnson, a
junior, is a good sign of things
to come.
"Quentin's getting a whole
lot better," Zow said. "As he
continues to grow, he'll
continue to get better."
The Tigers did not start the
second half the way they
ended the first. Three
penalties, including two 15-
yarders, .disrupted the offense
- and eventually led to a punt-
the Tigers' only one of the
entire game- However, Union-
did not have to wait long to get
the ball back as Hamilton went
three-and-out.
It appeared as if the Tigers
were still feeling th6 effects
from their previous drive as a
holding penalty had them
facing * second-and-25.
Alexander's incompletion led
to third-and-25, but he
completed a long pass to Justin
Tyson. Tyson fumbled after
making the reception, but fell
on the loose ball, giving the
Tigers a first down at the
Hamilton 48.
Most of the rest of the drive
featured running back DJ.
Paige. He had runs of 14 and
11 yards sandwiched around a
roughing-the-passer penalty on
Hamilton that moved the
Tigers to the 15. Paige, who
finished the game with
approximately 40 yards on five
carries, carried the ball into the
end zone from 4 yards out with
2:47 remaining in the third
quarter. Alexander's run on the
two-point conversion made it a
28-0 game.
Once the fourth quarter
rolled around, ,most of the
starters sat on the bench, done
for the night. The Tigers
tacked on another score,
though, as running back
Dontrell Larry broke free for a


27-yard jaunt into the end zone
at the 7:23 mark of the fourth
quarter. Larry had three carries
on the drive for 47 yards and
finished the game with more
than 50 yards.
The successful two-point
conversion capped the scoring
at 36-0.
It may have been an "ugly"
game, as Zow termed it, but in
the end, the Tigers did what
they were supposed to do;
"I think our guys did enough
to win the game," Zow said.
"That's what we want to do, at
least win the game."

the game ended in a scoreless
tie.
Hoard addressed the team
after the game and praised the
players' attitude and effort. He
challenged the backups, telling
them to prepare harder because
they are only one play away
from being starters.
He also spoke .to the
Telegraph-about -his thoughts
on the game and his freshmen
players.
"Conditioning helped us
tonight with the guys who had
to play both ways," Hoard
said. "I think we were better
conditioned than (Williston).
Mosley didn't come out at all
in the third quarter. The kid's
bowed their necks on defense.
(Phillip James), a. true
freshman, got a big sack for us
tonight."
Speaking of Burch, Hoard
said, "Teams are going to try
to exploit that he's young. We
know that. He has a laid-back
demeanor, but he's a winner.
He wants to win. He has
already made a big impact on
this team, but he has a long
way to go."

Union opens season against


Class 6A Ocala Forest


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
This year's Union County
team opens the season in the
same way last year's team did,
by facing an opponent in a
larger classification. However,
this year's team would like to
avoid duplicating the outcome
when it hosts Class 6A Ocala
Forest Friday, Sept. 4, at 7:30
p.m.
The Tigers played Class 4A
Baker County to start last
season's schedule, but an
error-filled game, which
included two interceptions
returned for touchdowns,
helped lead to a 44-0 loss.
"We don't want to make
those mistakes we made last
year," Zow said. "I think our
guys understand that. We're
going to look to play hard
(Friday). I know it's going to
be a tough battle."
Forest is coming off of an 8-
2 season and returns 16
starters. Five of those starters
compose the entire offensive


line, while the offense also
returns quarterback Zach
Welch, running back Donald
Webb and wide receiver James
Brooks.
The unit played well in a
half of action in a preseason
classic last Friday, defeating
Ocala Vanguard 13-0. Welch
and Brooks hooked up for a
53-yard touchdown play, while
Webb scored on a 29-yard run.
Behind that � experienced-
offensive line, Webb rushed
for 94 yards on 12 carries,
While the team finished with
138 yards on 23 carries.
Defensively, the Wildcats
held Vanguard to 11 yards.
Forest won its eight games
last year by an average margin
of 28 points. Overall, the
Wildcats scored 37 points per
game, while opponents
averaged 17 per game.
Zow said this will be a tough
test for his team, considering
. that as a larger school, Forest
has more resources at its
disposal and a greater pool of
student-athletes to choose


from.
"They'll have more athletes.
They'll have everything they
need on their sideline," Zow
said. "Our guys will just have
to go out there and play
football. That's all we can do.
We'll do that."
The last time the Tigers
played Forest, Zow was a
senior at Union County High
School. That game opened thea
season as well and was the first
win of an undefeated season in
which the Tigers won their
third straight state
championship. Union won 35-
7, getting three touchdown
runs from Patrick Hampton as
well as a touchdown run each
from Bennie Alexander and
Teddy Cummings.
Offensively, Union
outgained Forest 437-207.
Defensively, the Tigers forced
three turnovers.
Zow, a quarterback and
safety, did not play in that
game because of a knee injury
that kept him out most of the
season.
